David Morris Unveils Flawless D Color 60 Carat Diamond
People will have a chance to view at Biennale des Antiquaires to see David Morris’ superlative D color 60.15 carat diamond, which is the highest grade given for colorless diamonds. Also, it has been classified as Internally Flawless and Type IIa, which has the same quality of the Koh-i-Noor diamond that is found in Queen Elizabeth’s crown.
The beautiful characteristic of Type IIa diamonds means that it contains no nitrogen impurities. Spectators of this gemstone will understand the term “finest water” which perfectly describes the superlative quality that resembles a faceted drop of water.
The term “finest water” goes back to the 17th century explorer, Jean-Baptiste Tavernier, who used these words to describe the various gemstones and diamonds that he found on his travels to India and Golconda. However, presently, it has turned into a more scientific term, Type IIa.
